With the Tachyon Series Growing, Tyan is Displaying the Latest Industry Leading Graphics Accelerators at the CeBIT in Hannover, Germany


CeBIT, Hannover, Germany, March 12, 2003 - Tyan® Computer, one of ATI® Technologies' select certified AIB partners, is proud to showcase its full line of ATI RADEON™ based graphics cards at this year's CeBIT in Hannover.  Tyan is displaying the newest AGP 8X additions to the Tachyon Series graphics card family, including the G9500 PRO and the G9200 Series, as well as highly acclaimed products such as G9700 PRO and the G9000 PRO.

The Tachyon G9500 PRO brings both the world of Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 and the speed of AGP 8X to gaming enthusiasts everywhere.  With a 275MHz engine clock and 128 MB of 540MHz DDR memory, it is an incredibly fast solution with an excellent price-performance ratio. Other features include an 8 pixel rendering pipeline, an advanced cooling solution, 128-bit floating point color precision, ATI's HYDRAVISION™ software for multiple monitor display, and the latest OpenGL® support.

The Tachyon G9200 Series graphics cards are the first mainstream graphics solutions to combine Microsoft® DirectX® 8.1 support with the AGP 8X standard.  These are value products designed for the entry-level user to the professional. The Tachyon G9200 LE features a 250MHz engine clock and a 550MHz DDR memory clock, 64MB of high-performance DDR memory, and the latest OpenGL® support. An advanced quad-pipe rendering architecture and programmable geometry and texture engines produce dazzling, high-speed 3D graphics. Final specifications for the Tachyon G9200 PRO will be announced shortly.

Both the Tachyon G9500 PRO and the Tachyon G9200 Series feature Tyan's much anticipated Tachyon Graphics Monitor Software 2.0, which will allow users not only to monitor key hardware indicators such VPU temperature and voltage, but to regulate the fan speed on the card for optimal acoustics in the end-user's PC environment.

The Tachyon G9700 PRO has garnered the attention of technology magazines and online communities around the world. The G9700 PRO can be over-clocked up to nearly 400MHz - making it one of the fastest graphics cards on the market today.  Fitted with an advanced cooling system, the graphics card can run cool and stable with memory speeds approaching the limits of today's DDR memory technology. Moreover, the Tachyon G9700 PRO features Tachyon Graphics Monitor 1.0 software, which is the industry's first hardware monitoring software application for ATI RADEON based graphics cards.

The Tachyon G9000 PRO offers four parallel, highly optimized rendering pipelines, providing enhanced performance normally found on more expensive graphics cards.  Tachyon G9000 PRO users also get 64MB of DDR memory, best-in-class 3D gaming, complex and realistic lighting effects, DirectX® 8.1 and latest OpenGL® support, dual-display support, and an industry-leading software suite.
